2006 International Roofing Expo


Formerly the NRCA Annual Tradeshow, this revitalized event was held last February in Las Vegas to bring together members of the commercial, residential, metal and asphalt roofing industries.

This year's event, with its international focus, has provided participants with insight into new and emergent techniques and technologies. With a new global approach, contractors from around the world were in attendance to meet and discuss their needs and experiences in over 1000 idea-filled booths. In addition to the numerous displays, there was a focus on education with 45 accredited sessions available in a broad range of related subject areas.

Taking their cue from Batimat Paris, the largest industry event, the NRCA did an exceptional job of overhauling their annual show. This approach should see this event emerge from being a regional association conference to a must-attend international occurrence. This will be of significant benefit to the industry as a whole as practices; products and specifications can be more widely shared, discussed and applied.

Already the plans for 2007 are taking shape, including a return to Las Vegas.
